Houston Texans expect to make more moves before Week 14
By Jair Lopez
The Houston Texans continue to make moves on their active roster and practice squad.
The Houston Texans have several moves to make after 28-22 win against the New England Patriots in Week 13. The Texans announced they signed inside linebacker Nate Hall and waived tight end, Jerell Adams from the practice squad. Hall’s addition makes sense with the Texans only carrying four inside linebackers on the active roster after Dylan Cole tore his ACL in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Hall is a young defensive product in his first year in the league after going undrafted in 2019. He signed with the Dallas Cowboys and played against the Texans, the third game of the preseason. The Texans kept tabs on him and signed him after a short stint with the Buffalo Bills to develop him as the only inside linebacker on the practice squad.

The Texans still have a vacant spot on the practice squad with the promotion of defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes after Tytus Howard was sent to the injured reserve with an ongoing knee injury.
With how the roster is currently constructed with seven cornerbacks and seven defensive linemen, one of them could be on their way out to sign a fourth offensive tackle to the roster.
Texans could sign an outside player to fill out their tenth and final spot or waive one of their young players from the active roster and re-sign them to their practice squad.
The Texans could promote one of their three offensive tackles from the practice squad in Rick Leonard, Kyle Murphy, or Elijah Nkansah to be the fourth tackle on the depth chart.
Another viable option would be to sign Dan Skipper from Detroit Lions practice squad after he had a short stint with the Texans this season due to injuries on the roster.
